You really won't know 100% until the campaign is live.  Many elements go into the actual CPC such as your historical data (or lack of), quality score, ad copy, landing page and more.

 

However, you can get a good estimate using a the keyword planner tool or an outside tool like Keyword Spy.

Hi @Consultant I

 

Possibly the best way to do this is use the keyword tool and planner and this will give you estimates of the ballpark you may expect. Of course this isn't fixed pricing being an auction and you may also consider how your competitors for the same keywords may react - for example they may increase their bids which will may raise the price. I have found the estimates to be fairly ok as a guide but you will learn a lot more once live. 

 

It is also worth thinking about your devices and if you want to bid the same across all devices; but i guess this depends on your campaigns objectives. 

 

Good luck JEG
